A "Merry" Christmas!
December 22nd, 2010 9:42 AM

Being "merry" comes from the heart.  It is a choice we make every day of the year.  The definition of "merry" is:  full of fun and laughter, lively and cheerful, gay, mirthful, festive.

This Christmas will be especially difficult for many people.  I personally know of families who will spend their last holiday season in a home they love due to the loss of a job and financial hardship.  I have good friends and family members facing a divorce, struggling with serious illness and emotional crisis.  We all have our own kind of trials.

But in the midst of all this turmoil, we can choose to have a "merry" Christmas, with re-newed hope, dreams and courage for the new year.  We have much to be thankful for; and the gifts of love, encouragement, and hope to someone else cost nothing and are the greatest gifts of all.

Allen and I wish you the gifts of strength to meet your challenges, wisdom to make the right choices, and the grace to be grateful, not only for what you have, but for what you have escaped this past year.
